  1. Hey guys, I need some of your pedal knowhow. Recently my morely Fuzz/Wah pedal simple ceased working, bummer. I have taken some photo's of the insides of the pedal. unfortunately the camera I am using is rather fudged right now :( but any help would be much appreciated.

    Anyway, the photos are here, blurry but there. I believe the stray green wire to be the culprit....

    I can certainly understand your urgency. I mean, how can you play bass without a fuzz/wah?

    :bag:

    Just kidding...you know, there are so many things that can go wrong with a pedal, from a loose solder to a blown resistor. My first guess would be yes, there might be something going on with the green wire, but what you would hook it to, I don't know. Look for a broken solder or a screwhole that's empty on the plug nearest the green wire. But if you don't see anything obvious, I would find an electronics repair place. I've been using K&B Electronics in Madison Heights, Virginia to repair some old broken wirelesses, and they've been great and not expensive at all. Can't find their number but a Google search will reveal it.
     
  3. Haha, thanks for the advice. dont think im gonna be able to get onto that shop tho... Virginia is an awful long way from australia...
